As you all probably know, I've been in some crappy episode thing for a while now.

Finally got some sleep today, after having not taken Lexapro for 3 days. (the stuff that drives me crazy)

Tonight: I decided to take 3.5mg of Lexapro. And took my kloni.

I hope this won't send me up and that I'll sleep tonight.

Starting to feel adrenaline and more racy

Not sure what's best if I should do an activity like hot shower or something or if getting up will further agitate

Anyone have suggestions???

A shower or run a hot bath and turn on some relaxing music. A hot bath sounds so nice right now.

I have no clue what you should do ... it's a Blizzard here in MN, literally! I got 2.5 hours of sleep last night with my insomnia even with my Trazadone...the weather makes me want to nap but that is useless... I hope that you can get some rest, I feel for you. Hugs ...

it's been a little bit, have you done anything? feeling better or different yet?

Like more energized but also happy and like crying

And thoughts roaring through my head like freight trains

And it's unpredictable

Irritability too beneath waiting to creep out and jump

And like my body has tingles of electricity running through it

A blizzard sounds good. I like heath and oreo. Maybe you should have some icecream.

I make the best rootbeer floats!

I know. unfortunately sleep isn't something you can force. Just try and relax as much as you can for now. :grouphug:

Thanks Fuzzy, I am. :grouphug: And I'm trying not to be too hard on myself.

This isn't something I can control.

I found some great articles so it's helping me feel better about bipolar

I am not saying to try this but sometimes when my mind is racing and I can't sleep I eat a lot of chocolate.

I will even get out bed if I have laid there for an hour or 2 and go stuff my face and get back in bed. Be careful if you do this. You will find chocolate on your pillow case. Lol. I have.

After that my mind slows down and about 20 mins. later after the sugar crash I sleep like a baby.

GOOD LUCK!

Everything looks more beautiful.

Like I'm exploring a new world.

Everything is more defined.

Crystal clear vision.

Does Lexapro cause this? Also maybe I'm never truly achieving full happiness?

How can I sustain it?

This sounds a bit like my hypomanic episodes, just more intensive and yes, I think anti depressants can induce them.

Enjoy the good feelings while they last. I'm not sure if this helps but when you are in the grip of negative feelings it might be a slight comfort to know that those are largely induced chemically as well. (Still sucks..I know.)
